I shoot 120 and 35mm, so the Nikon Super coolscan 9000ED at my Mom's office seemed like a godsend. Unfortunately, the only computer there that can run Nikon Scan is an ancient iMac. Its too slow for this kind of work. I lost two hours of my day and three good scans because it did not have enough RAM to save my images. The computer won't let me exploit most of the features of the 9000ED like digital ICE because they make it unstable and freeze up. Most of my scans from today (on black and white negative) failed miserably and took 20 minutes each. Very disappointed. I am sure that someone out there has lots of experience with the 9000 ED and could help me. I might be doing something wrong with the settings. some of the directions did not make sense, like the ones about the lightness controls. I can't get scans to look like i want them to without spending 30 minutes of trial and error on one scan, then fine tuning the settings again. The scans that do turn out are stunningly detailed and have nice colors, especially compared to the scans i get out of all-in-one printers. Please, is there a better way? Software update to run on modern macs? Cheap 3rd party scanner drivers? Some method to this madness?
